ICO Archive Day: The Long Memory
+ intro by Catharine Des Forges, Director of the Independent Cinema Office
A rarely seen noir, with a hint of the dark thrillers emanating from 1930s France.
Dir Robert Hamer
With John Mills, Elizabeth Sellars, John McCallum, Eva Bergh
This rarely seen noir, written and directed by Robert Hamer, has more than a hint of the dark thrillers emanating from 1930s France. John Mills channels Jean Gabin in the role of a man wrongly imprisoned, whose pursuit of those who framed him takes him from the atmospheric mud flats of North Kent to London’s docklands. This screening will be introduced by Catharine Des Forges, Director of the Independent Cinema Office.
In partnership with the Independent Cinema Office (ICO) we’re showcasing two expertly curated archive events: a special 35mm presentation of Robert Hamer’s The Long Memory, and Rapsodia Satanica from 1917. See our screening of Rapsodia Satanica on Thursday 7 December.
